OH MY GOD, I just noticed it this week, it smells like rotten eggs mixed with mold and ass. I was going to post on here today about it.


I guess there is nothing we can do about the smell but I hope it isn't caused by some toxic mold or something that will kill us in 15 years.

The woman in question was 3rd degree "burnt" by the coffee:
Liebeck was hospitalized for eight days while she underwent skin grafting, followed by two years of medical treatment.

Well, I think this is a much bigger societal problem, or should I say breakdown of society. For example, what happened to:

- raising one's own children properly, teaching them discipline and boundaries, rather than outsourcing that to nannies (who don't care) or daycares? Or just trying to be "friends" with your kids????
- giving seats to the elderly and young on trains? During my second pregnancy, no one on the PATH train ever gave me a seat
- being responsible for one's own actions?
- using one's own brain (e.g. well, if you're buying a hot coffee from McD, it will be hot, right? Remember that law suit when someone sued McD because they were "burnt" by the hot coffee)?
- and the list goes on and on and on.....

Because we're....soft. Weak. We've been trained to assume that "the authorities" will handle things, so we just stare at our phones.

Not to go on a rant, but this puts me in mind of my chubby middle-aged Facebook friends who scream about how "we" should go kick ISIS's ass. Um, who's "we", dude? You mean those 22-year-old enlistees? Maybe "we" should get their opinion first.


It's absolutely OUTRAGEOUS that this happened. It makes me so angry to even imagine that people are too busy playing games or texting on their phones to even notice that someone got stabbed.

I do not buy into the notion that this was caused by any equipment failure.

There is a breakdown in humanity going on but nobody is paying attention. We are being conditioned to look the other way and have become weak.

As for the idiots that say we should kick ISIS's ass... I think we should withdraw our troops from any conflict overseas and position them on all of our borders. The rich and powerful continue to send other people’s children off to non-defensive wars. Let the people there take care of their own problems. We need to take care of ourselve here.

Teach me how to be tough like you, bro.


Gladly. Just say when. 90% of the time, taking charge of a situation consists of simply taking charge.


Thanks for the step by step tutorial. I'm sure your experience in disarming knife wielders comes in handy too, though.

If the ferry were to lower their rates in half, I am sure they would increase revenue by 800%.

The trains are so crowded during rush hour that it is INHUMANE. In fact, I am certain that pigs that are transported to slaughter are treated more humanely than people during rush hour path trains.



I hope the ferry raises prices, it is getting more crowded. During rush hour the ferries are SRO. They should also charge extra for people with strollers.

We need to relax our antiquated concealed carry laws =( Seriously, how are we supposed to defend ourselves against knife and gun wielding madmen? We are in a nanny state where the people we trust with our safety are not available.

Imagine the mayhem though as a small % of people in the train car pull their guns. After a few minutes, who would even know for sure who the madman is.

What a sh it show last eve at the beginning of the delays. 33rd station had 3 trains fully packed, and the platform was fully packed. When the first JSQ train (my train) finally got the ok move, NO ONE ELSE was able to get on from 23rd-Christopher. The conductor had to lie about the next train being empty to stop people trying to jam themselves in.

Little did they know that all following trains would be fully packed as well!! LOL… SO GLAD MY STOP IS 33RD! I WAS CHILLIN IN A SEAT CANDY CRUSHING!!!

I took the train back around 6:00 from WTC, and they had announced the delays on the line due to a car equipment problem. As it happened, a train came in just as I went downstairs. It was packed, but no worse than typical rush hour.

I happened to be next to the conductor. He explained that there was a relatively minor equipment problem in one car that required the train to stop and for the conductor or engineer to go out and fix. Some guy on the train started screaming about the delay, and when they started the train again....he pulled the emergency brake in a fit of rage. That's what really caused the delay, because they had to make sure this person wasn't going to do anything else crazy, and arrange for police to arrest him.

Hopefully the perp was stupid enough to have a cellphone that was on.

All it takes is LE to get their hands on transmission records for all phones that pinged into cell networks within a pretty close timeframe (under 30 seconds) of when he exited the station and probably could narrow it down to one exact match if the phone was last connected to a network somewhere around Herald Square within 20 minutes beforehand.

Would be interesting to learn the circumstances behind this stabbing. The second article just says the victim didn't know the stabber. Was it completely random? Was there a loud argument beforehand? Caused by how utterly packed the trains are?

And many of the other service delays seem unrelated. Really ridiculous that such a tiny subway system has this many problems. A "car equipment problem" independently occurring on all four PATH lines within an hour?
